English musician Anohni took to Facebook today to announce an open call for fans to submit "gestures of anonymous vulnerability" in exchange for an exclusive unreleased track by her. The Oneohtrix Point Never and Hudson Mohawke collaborator said that if listeners email her with "a sentence or two what you care most about, or your hopes for the future," she will send them a bonus track off her upcoming Paradise EP called "I Never Stopped Loving You."
Anohni explained that she wouldn't send the track if the emails have anything to do with her or her music, though. Instead, she strictly wants them to be about the senders' thoughts. She wants to "hear your collective mind," and encourages people to "take a risk and break out of established ways of doing and perceiving" when they write to her.
Paradise was recorded during the same sessions as her landmark 2016 LP Hopelessness; "I Never Stopped Loving You" is meant to be listened to as the last song on the EP, and Anohni described it as the "final piece of the puzzle." The musician can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In a statement released along with the announcement of the EP, Anohni commented on the current ecological and political climate. "More profound even than a crime against humanity, fathers and sons now compulsively prepare to commit ecocide, in a final and irreversible assault upon creation itself," she said. "Only an intervention by women around the world, with their innate knowledge of interdependency, deep listening, empathy, and self-sacrifice, could possibly alter our species' desperate course."
Paradise will be out on Friday, March 17, and is available for pre-order on Bandcamp.
